weak, Minneapolis, was weaker. Advlcs
indicate that harvesting will be general

and reports from our own northwest are
good. All this decline has not, apparently,
served to Interrupt buying from the coun

mand from Europe, and a good one, belore
the spring wheat movement starts, or
lower prices may be expected.

The wheat market was again under com.

advantage to hammer the prlco down to a
new low record market lor the season.
Cash houses were the principal sellers
. early In- the day. but toward the noon
hour the selling became general and the
market developed extreme weakness. The
principal factor in the situation was the
continued tree niovemeint or wheat from
the farms, the total primary receipts today

ttle corresponding day a year aero. A de
cline of nearly 2o a bushel In the prloe
of wheat at St. Louis supplemented the
heavy movement in its depressing; effect
on the local market. The Ohio crop roport.
which showed the condition of tho wheat
crop to be Hire against Wo on July 1, was
another bearish factor. There were some
bullish advices but these were apparently
paused over. Among these reports was
one whlhc claimed that heavy rains In
Kansas had caused wheat In tha ahouka to

NEW YORK. Aug 4.-A1I preliminary
estimates of the changes In the bank state
ment proved at fauit ga!n today. The
discrepancies were partly due to the fact
that a new member of the clearing house
was Included In the showing for the first
time today, thus disarranging the compaii.
son of the averages.
The estimates of the known movement
of money yesterday seem not to have made
sufliclent allowance for the effect
of the redeposit of the treasury funds
against payment of Panama bond sub
scriptions. The volume In cash, therefore,
Instt ad of rising to over 34,titM,ooo, as was
Indicated, Is less than $7i0.oc0. Rut the
more favorable allowing then was expected
In tljls Item was neutralised by-the heavy
loan expansion of $18.776.tuO, which eerved
to Increase the reserve requirement to such
an extent as to leave the surplus Impaired
to the exient of $4,769.8(10. Stocks were
under pressure, partly on account of the
bank showing, no doubt. Rates for time
loans were also appreciably higher and
smaller frupplles were said to be offering.
There was also a Arm tone and a sharp
advance In foreign exchange rates, In spite
of the holiday In London, which Is to be
extended until Tuesday. The stock mar
ket was more Influenced, however, by the
evidence offered by yesterday's operations
that stocks were being distributed In
speculative liquidation. The weeding out of
recent speculative favorites was continued
today and only momentary support was
offered the market immediately after the
lower opening. By 'he time prices were
restored to last night's level the force of
the selling again became predominant and
continued almost uninterrupted to the clos
ing, which was easy, and at declines run
ning from one to over two points for many
of the prominent stocks.
Total sales of bonds, par value, $127,000.

CATTLE Ther were no fresh cattle
In the yards of any consequence, it being.
usual on a Saturday, a holiday so tar
as the trade In cattle was concerned. The
receipts this week have run slightly ahead
of last week being large for this time ft
the year. This Is especially noticeable
when a comparison Is made with the re
ceipts of a year aero, when the run w xa
not nearly so large as this week.
The week started out with an un-
precedcutiy heavy run for this season of
the year, the receipts on Monday having
been the largest of the year, with one
single exception. Unfortunately other
market points had large runs th same
day and broke badly. Under these con
ditions all kinds of cattle slumped badiy
here. Beef steers might be quoted for
the week all of 25c lower, or 26tf6uc
lower than the high time ten days ago.
After Monday the market changed Very
The market on cows and -heifers has
been getting worse almost every day. Last
week It was quoted 25 it 40c lower and
this ween there has been an additional
break of 15 4j-6c, making the market J:J
70c lower than the high time ten days
or two weeks ago. As a matter of course
the break has been brought about by the
large receipts oi western grassera. A de
cline of that kind is nothing unusual for
this season of the year.
Receipts of stockers and feeders were
decidedly heavier this week than during
any previous week so far this season.
Speculators and yard traders loaded up
heavily the first of the week, but later on.
as they found themselves unable to unload
their cattle on the country, they became
very poor buyer and the market declined
at tho close of the week 15ir25o on the
general run of fair to. good feeders, with
light and medium kinds 26 450o lower
than a week or ten days ago.
HOGS After yesterday's wild ' market
the trad steadied down somewhat today.
feSttll the movement was not as activo as
yesterday and the general trade was lack
ing In snap, so that considerable time was
consumed In disponing of the hundred odd
As to prices it 1 no easy matter to make
comparison with yesterday tor the reason
that yesterday's market was so very un
even. The feding among sellers was that
light hogs, if anything, sold a little
stronger than yesterday, barring possibly
the extrsme high time of yesterday. On
the other hand heavy hogs did not sell
quite as well as yeaterday. Taking the
market as a whole it was not materially
different from yesterday's average mar
ket, but as a matter of course It wa
possible to find plenty of sales, which
were very different Trom some that wero
made yesterday. Very choice light hotfn
sold as high as $6.37 V. which was 2Vx:
above yesterday's top.
Receipts of bogs this week show a mod
erate gain over last week and a very
heavy Increase over the cot responding
week of a year ago. The large receipts,
both bare and at other market points,
enabled packers to bear the market, with
tha result that prices tendej rapidly down
ward, until yesterday, when there was a
very sharp reaction. On Thursday tho
hog sold on an average of 36c lower thin
at the clean of the previous week. After
allowing for yesterday's reaction the mar
ket today Is 20 'a Sac lowc
ir than one week
After the more urgent orders were Piled
the trade became even lea aetlve than
It was early. About that time thirteen ad
dltlrnal cars arrived at the yards and
buyer who were still on the market took
advantage of th situation to pound price
somewhat. Good light hoys did not sell
so much lower, but heavy hogs were In
many cases us much as 6i;10c lower than
the erly sales. It would I hard work to
Imagine a more uneven market than that
which has prevailed here for the laat two
or three days.

SHEEP Contrary to th uiual custom
there were a few sheep In the yards today,
three fresh cars being reported In. They
sold at Just about steady prices and the
market was without noteworthy chan.
Receipts of sheep have been quite lib
eral this week, all hough several ihouaund
short of the record for last week. As
compared with a year ago there was a
very heavy falling off, aa wlil be noted
from the table showing comparative re
ceipts. The market has been In very satisfac
tory condition all the week, there being
a good, active demand for all kinds or
desirable sheep and lambs, both killers
and feeders. The trade on most days has
been fairly active and It has been no
ttotible at all for receivers to dispose of
everything that could be graded as de
sirable. As to prices, no very great fluc
tuations took place during the week, the
market on most days being quoted steady
or strong. Such changes as have lakni
place have been on the side of better
prices. For example, ewes have sold very
well and are generally quoted as a little,
higher. Wethers and yearlings have also
been bringing very atlsfactory prices and
they, too, looked hlfth as compared with
the tall end of last week.
There have been plenty of feeder buyer
In the yards all the week; In fact, more
buyers than sheep. An abundance of feed

that they could use Is met with ulcrt
takers at good prices. Al a matter of fact
buyers complained a good deal because
supplies were not larger, and the way the
feeling Is at this point at the present
time It would not seem as If anyone cou,d
afford to ship the stuff by this point.
Operators on the market are nil looking
forward to a very good trade the coming
week. In fact every Indication would
seem to point to an Increase In the feeder
derhand as the season advances, and Bt
this season of the year the feeder trade la

explains that Washington had been dead
many years when their meeting loos:
When the great general died, Decemuer
14, 1799, his body, clad In Its continental
uniform, was embalmed and placed In a
leaden coffin, which was laid In the old
vault of the Washington family at Mount
Verpon. Washington's will left full In
structions for his burial. The old vault
became mora and more damp and sodden.
and the publlc-nilnded felt that It wua
an unfit place for the body of tho natlon'a
hero to rest.
Th removal of the body In May. 1634.
from the old vault to the tomb which It
now occupies, was made the occasion of a
ceremony which was attended by many
distinguished statesmen. The stage coach,
In which they made the trip from Washing

Indian , -n hotel, on tha site of tha
present Metropolitan. In tha crowd which.
had gathered to watch the departure of me

One of the gentlemen lifted the boy up
to look at the body, of which the face alone
was visible. Mr. Lane says that the faoe
was perfectly preserved except for a email

a noble face wun us patrician nn, mi

Mr. Lone waa for many years a whole
